    Post Force feedback explained. Configuration settings for all cars and tips

    Hi there,

    here goes a good video explaining the FFB system of Project Cars 2. It contains explanations about all its parameters, recommended settings for all cars and much more:



    NOTE: For the latest version of FFB settings please check the spreadsheet. Some are already outdated on the video. But it's worth the watch anyway.

    Link to the PCars2 Force Feedback spreadsheet.

    Hope it will be useful for all of you

    Kindest regards

    Where did this "put speed sensitivity at 45" come from? Because I have used RAW and the FFB feels a little weak in the centre, this settings is making my centre bigger, if that makes sense, since I steer more but get less movement in the wheels, so less resistance. Is this indeed a good settings? I need to try it again anyway, I didn't get to play too much yesterday.

    And as far as the windows control panel goes, does pcars use the PERIODIC slider now? I am pretty sure it didn't in PCARS1.

    IDK, I know Ben was using Steering Sensitivity at 45 in a WMD2 post on 2/23/2017 and not speed sensitivity. But, Casey Ringley replied

    Nothing has changed in the fundamental code for how steering sensitivity works, so 50 is still pure linear response from input to output. Personally, I'd never change from that on any decent wheel, but Ben likes to fiddle with the dials and that's cool.

    You're right thanks. The spreadsheet has been edited to correct that, and a note explaining that has been added to the video's description to clarify that.
